Dr. Ron Smith has to be one of the best thoracic surgeon I know. He guided me through my cancer journey and greatly assisted me in decision making. I also worked with him in Florida and was sorry to see him relocate!

Review for Dr. Smith

Prepared for the surgical procedure prior. Written instructions were well done. Knew what to expect pre-operatively and post-operatively. Knew exactly what I could and could not do once I got home. Good communication from the office. Recovery went very well.

Dr Maxson is a wonderful surgeon. I had knee replacement and I walk without pain for the first time in several years. He explained the procedure fully and prepared me for the recovery and therapy I would have afterwards. I’m just thrilled with the results.
